My Injury

Last night I was acting like my usual, goofy self when I pulled my arm away from my mom as she was brushing my teeth. After I fell to the ground I began screaming & crying in pain. I'm one tough cookie but that was even too much pain for me to handle. My poor mom was trying to comfort me but couldn't help crying herself since she couldn't stand to see me in such pain. Mommy & Daddy decided to see how I did during the night before we made a trip to the ER.

I woke up crying in pain a few times during the night but overall, I slept pretty well. When I woke up this morning in just as much pain, it was time to call the doctor. I was a total trooper through the whole thing, even when I had to have pictures taken of my arm... it hurt so bad when they had to move it!

Luckily my arm wasn't broken but we needed to figure out why I was in so much pain. The pediatrician we saw today was so nice & I liked him a lot. But I liked him even more after he suspected that my elbow was dislocated & got it back into place!! Okay, maybe I wasn't so fond of him as he was manipulating my arm & causing me excruciating pain, but when it was done & my pain was gone, I could have kissed him! We celebrated by getting some Happy Meals at McDonald's afterward. I'm so thankful to be feeling better now!!
